Question. When all conventionally engine cars suffer company car tax at the maximum of 37%, what control will HMG have over CO2 emissions? Something interesting is happening to company car scale rates, with the new CO2 numbers starting to roll out now from...

We Believe in the Road to Zero

We often joke with the audience at our company seminars that our typical client has one Range Rover and 25 hard working Skoda Octavia Estates! If you look at the last 50 reviews we’ve done, the above isn’t too far out. Except the Range Rover is more likely to be a...

Limits to the BEV take-up

Limits to the BEV take-up

Back in November I posted about how the limited availability of cobalt and other metals has the potential to limit BEV take-up. UK BEV sales could struggle to rise significantly from a base in 2019 of just 1.6% of all new car registrations. Even with a tripling of...

The New Mini Electric

Autocar’s review of the Mini Electric is out this morning and makes great reading. This follows closely on from the reviews of the Honda e and the Peugeot e208. They all sound like they are going to be a lot of fun to drive. It reminds me a little of the 80’s with the...

Where are all the unsold BEVs hiding?

1.6% of all new cars registered in 2019 were Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs). That’s just 38,000 units against a total of 2.3m cars sold in the UK. In fact, Jaguar on their own sold more cars (of all types) in the UK in 2019 than the total number of BEVs sold by all...

Why are people picking on Toyota and Lexus?

Why are people picking on Toyota and Lexus for the phrase “self-charging hybrid?” My taxi home from the station last night was in a Toyota Auris Hybrid estate, which was averaging 78.4mpg. This was around Milton Keynes, which is all roundabout then 70mph then...

For better or worse?

For better or worse?

Virtually every post I read on LinkedIn seems to claim a new UK sales record for EV, but Last Monday’s report from the SMMT suggests that CO2 emissions from new cars are rising (up 2.7% over 2018, up to an average of 127.9g/km). We believe that tax rules, particularly...

Are company cars the problem?

Are company cars the problem?

Who looks at the picture above and thinks “company cars are the problem”? HM Government’s focus seems to be in driving all ICE company cars off the road. The scale charge for 1 litre petrol Renault Clio is an unbelievable 24% (25% next year) which means an employee’s...

The Cobalt Conundrum

The Cobalt Conundrum

You might reasonably argue that the case for electric vehicles is overwhelming. Trust me – 10/15 years from now you’ll pass a petrol station and think “wow, haven’t seen one of those in ages”. So why haven’t we all already got an electric car? There are huge tax...

What difference does 3 miles make? About £60 a month? The (brilliant) BMW 330e PHEV (SE) was listed at 41 electric range on the BMW website - except now it seems to say 38? We keep pointing this out - but these ranges are really important for company car tax. Register...

A new benchmark?

New company car tax rules

There was an understandable degree of excitement when HMG announced the new company car tax rules yesterday. However, arguably the changes amount to little more than moving the deck chairs. We believe the biggest news is that the CO2 scale charge escalator has finally...

New PHEVs are coming

Apparently a 34% fall in PHEV sales is the fault of HMG’s decision to remove the grant? I have to say I think that’s unlikely to be the full story? This time last year there were a number of decent PHEVs available – the Golf and Passat GTE, Audi A3 etron, BMW 330e,...

Yes the future IS electric

Yes the future IS electric

It appears around a million Europeans bought petrol cars rather than diesels in 2018. HRUX’s own sums suggest that, over their lifetimes, those cars will emit nearly 3 million tonnes or more CO2 than the diesels Europeans were buying. Is that a lot? Does that matter?...
